Wondertouch has released an additional three new libraries in its Professional Emitters (Pro Emitters) software line for particleIllusion 3.0.

Each library contains 30 complex, ready-to-use, particle-based emitters that allow digital content creators to easily customize particle effects projects. The Pro Emitters supplement the already impressive selection of more than 2000 different preset emitters that ship with particleIllusion 3.0, as well as the additional emitters that the company releases free-of-charge each month, to provide artists with an impressive variety of effects choices.

With today’s announcement, the expanded wondertouch Pro Emitters collection now offers a total of 360 particleIllusion 3.0 emitters arranged into twelve themed libraries ranging from real-world effects such as explosions, fire, auroras, and breaking glass to motion graphics and artistic backgrounds, text and abstract effects.

Wondertouch says that the Professional Emitters Libraries, initially introduced in March 2006, were created by some of the world’s most talented particleIllusion artists. The latest libraries were developed by Phalkunabba Rath, a freelance photographer, digital media artist and animator who also created two of the original libraries – Abstract and Text & Logo.

Each Professional Emitter Library contains 30 fully-customizable emitters that reflect Rath’s stylistic influences. Pyro 1 and Pyro 2 contain a wide variety of high-energy emitters that depict realistic and organic fire, flames, blasts and explosions.
Hearts contains beautifully surreal, flowing, and colourful heart shaped designs that Wondertouch says are perfect for wedding videos or any place where an artistic, romantic theme is needed.

The Professional Emitter Libraries cost $39 (around £19), with the three libraries are available together for $90 (£44). wondertouch also offers the 'Professional Emitters Complete' - a collection of all twelve libraries at a cost of $329 (£160). The Pro Emitter Libraries are compatible only with wondertouch particleIllusion 3.0, on both the Windows and Mac OS X platforms.
